Color Throwdown #266 - Family

Hi Everyone and thanks for stopping by today! It time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge. This week is hosted by Lori and she has chosen a this really pretty color combo. 

And here is my scrapbook page based on the challenge. The picture is of three of my girls and their cousins from a Christmas a few years back. I love the mix of traditional and non traditional Christmas Colors. 

The patterned paper is from Websters Pages. I also added burlap under the photo for a little extra texture.

The little paper bag is also from Websters pages and the tag is cut with the Pierced Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics. The red flowers are cut with the Layered Rose Die-namics and the leaves with the Royal Leaves Die-namics. 

The stamp set I used the sentiments and the year at the top of the page is LLD Document It - December. The doily is cut with the smaller die in the Dainty Doily Duo and the center with the Pierced Circle STAX Die-namics. 

Here the sentiment is from the Cheerful Christmas Greetings Stamp Set and cut out with the smaller die in the Bracket Edge Duo Die-namics. The fishtails are cut with the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics. 

 I hope you get a chance to play along!
